Kaka Contract Lifts AC Milan

Ricky Kaka has extended his contract with AC Milan until 2013.

The current World and European player of the year still had two years of his current deal to run.
Vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed that negotiations had been completed quickly as the 25-year-old has stated his desire to become a true symbol of the club in the mould of captain Paolo Maldini.

He added: "He already is that and also the best player in the world.

"This contract is for the rest of his career and I hope that if he is still playing in 2013 that we will be able to get him to sign another one."

The Brazilian played a major part in propelling the Rossoneri to the Champions League last year and finished top scorer in the competition.

However, the attacking-midfielder has been plagued by a knee problem this campaign which will force him out of the Serie A Game Day 26 meeting with Lazio.

Defender Alessandro Nesta is also missing as he recovers from a recent injury but the pair are both expected to line-up against Arsenal in the Champions League next week.
